Finally, someone tells doctors the truth.

In an article from the Palm Beach Post Dose of reality for doctors, writer Phil Galewitz reports on how "The antidote that Florida's doctors hope will cure soaring malpractice insurance rates -- a $250,000 cap on pain and suffering damages -- won't work, the state's largest malpractice insurer said Tuesday."

Physicians had staged a "two-day walkout to protest runaway malpractice insurance costs" but contrary to belief and the doctors' belief, the BEST DOCTORS COULD HOPE FOR WOULD BE A 16% premium cut in 3-5 YEARS.
